An Interesting Rebuttal Against Marijuana Legalization

From Jeff Hunt at USA Today:

This was an interesting op-ed piece making the case against legalizing marijuana use on a federal level.

While the State of Colorado is accruing tens of millions per year from marijuana sales, it is still just 1% of total state revenue and with unknown costs to offset. Also, while the intention of legalization was to reduce incarceration rates–especially for black and latino youth–arrest rates for that part of the population for marijuana possession have increased.
